Remembering the time I spent traversing the Dolores, a tributary of the Colorado river, through the cavernous American West. Many of areas such as this were amongst the nation's first national parks. #la3413#dolores#coloradoriver @landarchhistory_umn

Alright the link to the full edit is in my bio ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️.
For the first rodeo I️ think this edit turned out pretty cool. A nice blend of dialogue and creative shots. Captain hindsight would have changed a bunch of things but let the cards fall where they may. Had some minor audio and quality issues but that happens I guess. Now that I’ve gone out, filmed an entire event, and been locked to a computer editing content I know what shots I’ve missed and want to change for next time. You live and you learn; love the process. That makes me hungry for the next one. Congrats to @carl_jocumsen on the 18th place finish! Had a blast collaborating with you on this project and hope to be working with you again in the future mate!
Day 6, Grand Canyon Horsethief/Butte Fault route, Lava/Chuar Camp. I awoke on Saturday morning hoping this was the day I'd get a ride in a boat across the Colorado River to continue my itinerary. I had been waiting on the beach since 2:30 on Thursday afternoon. I kept telling myself, "One of these times, you'll look up and there's going to be a boat there". And then at 10:30 am, there they were - a whole trip full of boats! I flagged them down and the trip leader, John, said he'd be happy to take me across and take my cache bucket out with him. Even got a bonus ride through Lava/Chuar rapid on his sweet cataraft! John deposited me on the beach at Palisades and I told him I'd make sure to rate his Uber service five stars! I hiked up to the top of the rapid to connect my steps, then spent the afternoon relaxing and playing in the big sandbar before heading over to Tanner Beach for the night.
“Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children’s children, and for all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American … should see.”
- Theodore Roosevelt, Grand Canyon, 1903
I had never been to a place that made me feel so incredibly small yet so in awe. The layers upon layers that took millions of years of time and persistence to create. The storms, flooding, droughts, sunny days, and hellish days, all formed this land of shadows.
Each of our lives is made up of our own layers and shadows. Formed from our experiences, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Those are what make us unique and beautiful.
I waited my whole life to see the Grand Canyon. Well done Colorado River, well done Earth.
